"Trump has already torn your eyes" Nope, my good eye is in place & works just fine (the other: gone before I'd ever heard of D. Trump). # "you seem to have no idea just how low the international reputation of the US is. The US is a complete laughing stock. Every country on earth is head slapping." S...

Re: common

Other scientists say, 'the climate changes, this is normal and natural, man's products are not the primary driver of this change'. # "What data do your scientists use to disagree with my scientists?"

Generally: self-direction & -responsibility flavored with a modicum of compassion is 'good'. Evil, then, is any blunting of self-direction, -responsibility, and compassion. Whole whack of stuff conventionally thought of as 'okay' fits under the Evil umbrella if you look at this way. But, Henry, that...

national suicide

an ever-growing population of dependents with no attendant increase in the independent population (the folks who foot the bills) bad enough with a home-grown dependent population: absolutely devastating with open or porous borders again: I'm talkin' about the (quasi) welfare nation, the kind danglin...

"those who believe that man made carbon dioxide is destroying the planet continue to exhale..."

Old Bernie has a partial (or final?) solution: fund wide-scale abortions in the third world. ## "I seriously don't understand all the paranoia over Trump." He represents a deviation from the plan.
